At home Friday for the Hillsboro Invitational, Lincoln Wichert placed 10th with a score of 97. Annaliese Jorgenson placed 17th; Braxton Hiebert, 24th; and Monroe James placed, 39th.

“It was great to see Lincoln get off to a good start for his junior season,” coach Scott O’Hare said.“ Senior Annaliese has gotten off to a bit of a slow start by her standards, but she is getting back on track and hitting some really good golf shots.

“We are hopeful that with more practice and a few more JV tournaments that a few of our other golfers will gain some experience, confidence and consistency to enable us to get a full group of six golfers participating.”

Hillsboro’s next varsity match will be Tuesday in Sterling.
